She Was Hurt Emotionally

I'm Ntombivelile Ngcongo, and I'm 22 years old. This poem talks a lot about me, reminds me of the past things that happened to which no one knew and they never noticed a thing. I come from a home where my parents are very rough.

Tarnished

Published: December 2016

Her tears kept her going.
Her beauty was never seen.
Her pain was never felt,
Only her mistakes were judged.

She was hurt emotionally,
She was abused physically.
She was torn apart,
Her only mistake were judged.

No one knew what she was facing.
Nobody knew what happened at home.
Behind closed doors, who will judge her?
Her only sin was her smile.

Oh, her beauty was vandalized.
Oh, her hope was tarnished.
Her precious gift was taken,
Left her with a blessing, yet everyone judged her.
